Two months and three weeks ago: [[Annalise Keating|Annalise]] reads a newspaper article posing a question about [[Lila Stangard]]'s death. Was it an accident or was it murder? In class, Annalise lets her students know that she doesn't care to know if her clients are guilty or innocent. That's because everyone lies, so everyone is unknowable. For example, [[Marjorie St. Vincent]] may have been taken by surprise by someone she knew when she was stabbed 16 times in the master bedroom of her mansion. The alleged killer: [[Max St. Vincent]] - her husband.

[[Max St. Vincent|Max]] shows [[Annalise Keating|Annalise]] and her team the room where his [[Marjorie St. Vincent|wife]] of 20 years was killed. The crime scene has been preserved so the students can view it with a fresh set of eyes. Max uses [[Connor Walsh|Connor]] to play the role of his dead wife so he can act out how he murdered his wife according to the prosecution. He has the moves for sure. Max said there were three cops at the scene, but only two were listed on the report. Annalise sends [[Wes Gibbins|Wes]] to the police department to retrieve the supplemental arrest record. The clerk believes he’s with the DA's office, so she turns it over to him no questions asked.

[[Wes Gibbins|Wes's]] neighbor, [[Rebecca Sutter|Rebecca]], swings by at three in the morning to use his shower. It's cool. Wes was up. He can't help gazing at her as she undresses before heading behind the door. The next morning, Wes sees on the news that [[Lila Stangard]]'s death has been ruled a homicide. He recognizes the photo of her boyfriend, [[Griffin O'Reilly]], as being the same guy who rushed out of Rebecca's apartment not too long ago. Wes has no time to digest this, as he turns over the arrest report. [[Annalise Keating|Annalise]] effectively uses it to discredit the cop who bogusly claimed to have found the hunting knife that was used as the murder weapon.

[[Connor Walsh|Connor]] uses his "[[Oliver Hampton|Booty Call IT Guy]]" to get info to discredit [[Marjorie St. Vincent|Marjorie's]] [[Mrs. Taylor|best friend]], who would likely testify that [[Max St. Vincent|Max]] killed his wife to avoid a divorce. [[Frank Delfino|Frank]] takes [[Michaela Pratt|Michaela]] and [[Asher Millstone|Asher]] with him to help him find a witness to corroborate his alibi. Thanks to a little blackmail, the mission is accomplished. Max's daughter, [[Eloise St. Vincent|Eloise]], comes in from Stanford to be a character witness for her dad. She's prepped hard by the team, but is unprepared for the prosecution's claim that Max's first wife, her mother, was killed in Switzerland back when he went by the name Stuart Sims. The murder weapon: a hunting knife.

[[Annalise Keating|Annalise]] assures [[Max St. Vincent|Max]] that if he lies to her again he no longer has an attorney. At home, she checks [[Sam Keating|Sam's]] phone for messages from [[Lila Stangard]]. She finds an innocent one. She flat-out asks Sam if he slept with his student. It's happened before. Sam assures Annalise that there was nothing going on between him and Lila. They kiss and make up. Then it's back to work. Even if Max did kill his first wife, the team's only concern is proving that he didn't kill the [[Marjorie St. Vincent|second one]]. [[Laurel Castillo|Laurel]] has an idea of how to do just that. After all, Max is a hunter. He knows how to kill. Yet the crime scene suggests that the murderer does not.
